Announcing the BattleLore: Horrific Horde Goblin Army Pack
Battlelore | Published 18 March 2010
Goblinoids: Rumored to have their origins in little traveled desert areas, these diminutive creatures and their larger brethren, the Hobgoblins, behave cowardly if cornered, but beware, for they are brutally vicious when fighting in greater numbers.

Coming this Summer, Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce a major release that will have Goblinoid commanders across the realm screeching with delight. Get ready for the BattleLore: Horrific Horde Goblin Army Pack, the newest expansion set for BattleLore that comes jam-packed with exactly what you need to field an entirely Goblinoid army!
 
BattleLore: Horrific Horde provides fourty-two additional figures for your BattleLore army, including two never-before-seen troop types, as well as even more of the primary Goblinoid staples that are available in both the core set and the Goblin Marauders expansion. With all these added units, Goblins will no longer be relegated to serving as mercenary forces for a standard human army. The time has come to let loose the fury of the Horde!
 

The first new troop type that is found in BattleLore: Horrific Horde is the Goblin Halberdier. Goblin Halberdiers are speedy, highly mobile units that are armed with the medieval equivalent of a giant can opener. When they do stand and fight, they can battle toe-to-toe against most mounted units with some success. This can play a vital role in holding your ground when faced with the cavalry units of your enemies!
 
The second troop type carries a giant spiked club as its weapon of choice, the powerful Ogre. These gruesome and fierce opponents drive fear into the hearts of the bravest warriors for many reasons, not the least of which is that they fight in groups of three, and are living proof of the old adage "there is strength in numbers." Be wary when you see them lumbering across the battlefield towards your army. 
 
In addition to the new troop types, and all the printed materials, you'll find even more of the units that form the backbone of any Goblinoid menace: Goblin Swordsmen, Hobgoblin Cavalry and Hobgoblin Hyena Riders. For any budding Goblinoid commander this expansion set is sure to be a dream come true!
 
You'll also find all the appropriate Unit Summary and Specialist cards, plus Weapon Summary cards with the updated Sling rules for use with your Goblin Slinger units. In addition we've included fifteen Deployment cards for use with the Call to Arms Expansion set, which will allow you to fully customize your Goblin army and let you tailor your fighting force to the best strategic effect. Finally, a rulebook with five brand new adventures rounds out this fantastic addition to the BattleLore line. 
 
Keep a vigilant watch this Summer, for the world of BattleLore will never be the same!
 
Set in a world that bridges history and fantasy, BattleLore is board game that puts players in command of a vast array of miniature troops on the battlefields of medieval Europe. Using the easy-to-learn Commands and Colors system, players can wage thrilling battles without a lengthy time commitment.

Is this Horrific Horde a re-release of the Goblin Marauders and Goblin Skirmishers Packs plus two new units (Ogre and Halberdier) in a single package?

It is great to see that FFG has not abandoned BattleLore.  The Ogre looks amazing.
